MEET DR. VERMA

Kushagra Verma, MD, MS, FAAOS, is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who provides personalized back and neck care at Verma Spine, where he serves patients of all ages in the communities of Long Beach and Orange County, California.

Though he has a stellar reputation for minimally invasive spine surgery, Dr. Verma is an orthopedic specialist who successfully treats most back and neck problems using nonsurgical treatments. He’s affiliated with MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center, Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach, and Los Alamitos Medical Center.

Dr. Verma received his undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. He obtained a master’s and medical degree from New York University School of Medicine in New York City, then completed residency training at the prestigious Rothman Institute at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware.

In 2015, Dr. Verma finished a spine fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco, which is known as the premier institution for pediatric and adult spinal deformities. Before opening his own practice, he was an assistant professor at the University of Washington in Seattle, where he built a multidisciplinary spine deformity service.

Dr. Verma maintains an active interest in clinical research. He has authored more than 150 publications and book chapters, publishing his work in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Spine Deformity, and other peer-reviewed journals. He has presented his research at the Scoliosis Research Society, the North American Spine Society, the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America, and other professional meetings.

In 2010, he was awarded the cherished Russell Hibbs Award by the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS). As the oldest and most respected spine society, SRS focuses on the advancement of scoliosis care around the world. Dr. Verma was also selected in 2019 by The Leading Physicians to represent Los Alamitos as a Top Orthopaedic Surgeon of the Spine on FindaTopDoc.com.

Over the last decade, Dr. Verma has volunteered his services through FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital in Accra, Ghana, and the Global Spine Outreach, a nonprofit organization that provides spinal surgeries to underprivileged children around the world. Working together with these organizations, Dr. Verma has performed complex pediatric spine surgery in Africa, Colombia, and Mexico.
